The FSSP of Los Angeles responds to the Latin Mass Society and Anthony Tridentine

While I am not the biggest fan of the Fraternity of Saint Peter and the Ecclesia Dei movement for accepting the Second Vatican Council, I would like to share a letter from FSSP Priest, Father J Fryar, that was written on October 23rd, 2015. A brother in arms shared it with me and now its time for me to share it with the world.

“Anthony Perlas (Anthony Tridentine) arrived in los Angeles before Lent, this year. He remained a few months and then moved to Chicago. He was a recent convert from atheism, quite new to the Latin Mass and we taught him how to serve. He asked me if I would be willing to join him with an online Latin Rosary that he broadcasted on Wednesdays during Lent. I was happy to participate in that good cause. He also mentioned interest in applying to the seminary.

Before I met him, he had been entrusted with the care of the “Latin Mass Society” at Belmont Abbey College. This was a campus organization. It is my understanding that Anthony subsequently appropriated himself of the group, and kept it as his own after graduating and leaving the College.

One thing I repeatedly noticed about Anthony is that he does not take advice. (Explains why he blocked me and many other Catholics after we confronted him on Instagram.) While he claims to have a “spiritual director” that he allegedly consults, he never tells anyone who this spiritual director is. When people started wondering if it was I, it made me realize that he probably hasn’t got one.

At any rate, what began as a fetish for chapel veils has deteriorated to ever – reaching new lows, including full nudity, blasphemies against Our Blessed Mother, heretical content, sacrilegious posts, as well as quotes from Hitler.

(This is what I kept warning about from the beginning. Unfortunately it was given a blind eye from priests upon Facebook. My warning was described as a ‘Over reaction’ sadly..)

I have refrained until now from posting a public statement, because we are all trying to talk sense to Anthony, and he has disregarded, unfriended, and ignored every outreach. I gave him time to consider my advice to no avail.

I know a few young ladies who helped him with photos. They thought they were helping a good cause. (No disrespect intended to these fellow ladies in whom I respect since this was probably done innocently, but wasn’t the Masonic hand sign over the eye kind of obvious that this may be a Anti – Christ organization?..) When they asked him, as I also asked, to have our names removed from his sites, we all got the same response: “Absolutely! But I am very busy right now and will remove it later.” – That “later” never happens, and he has not removed the content related to me, or the FSSP, or of these young ladies.

I am obliged to give up trying to talk sense to him. I disassociate myself in any way from his corrupt websites. The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter has nothing to do with him, and he is not a member in any manner. Furthermore, the young ladies whose images appear on his sites should not be accomplices, because it is unclear who has requested that such content be removed, or what has been photo shopped.

Anthony has no firm theological formation, and has no authority to speak on behalf of the Latin Mass or the Latin Mass community. The content on his sites have no approval of the FSSP, or any other community related to the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. (What about the Novus Ordo?)

Finally, I strongly encourage parents to forbid their children to friend him on Facebook or follow him on other social media. His sites are perverse and have nothing to do with the Latin Mass. I encourage young ladies not to be involved with him or agree to be his “models”. This would not be helping, but rather of detriment to spread of the Extraordinary Form.

Let us all pray for the salvation of his soul, and that the content that he has posted be removed so as not to continue this mockery of the Sacred.”

“Well done, Padre! You deserve a carrot! Just please stop calling the True Mass the Extraordinary Form, its the official Roman Rite and doesn’t co exist with the illicit Novus Ordo!”

Jimmy.. I highly doubt he would want one of your carrots..

From the FSSP newsletter:

“Thou art a priest forever.” – ~ Hebrews 5:6

Dear Friends in Christ,

      The academic year at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary will begin soon, with nearly 90 seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter in formation for God’s holy priesthood. These men need your help, and thus I appeal to you as we launch our annual fund drive for seminarian support. From a modest beginning nine years ago, this appeal has become our biggest and most important fundraiser, and therefore, much depends on a strong response!

First Mass of Father Ian Verrier, FSSP Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, May 2015

This year, I wanted to share with you the question that I hear most often, whether in my travels throughout the district or in my office answering letters and calls: “When can the Fraternity come to our area?” This question touches me deeply, being both Assistant Director of Vocations and Director of Development for North America.

           On the one hand, I am amazed and grateful at how many men have entered our seminary, been ordained, and now are priest in our apostolates. On the other hand, I cannot help being somewhat impatient at how much work still remains! I meet so often with individuals, families, and communities who are both praying for and supporting our seminarians, hoping for the day when they also benefit from their own apostolate of the Fraternity.

    Each year the Fraternity strives to open new apostolates that offer the faithful a sacramental, liturgical, and community life rooted in the traditions of the Church. This year is no different: We already have new apostolates scheduled to open. But growth cannot continue without priests to send forth when opportunities arise.

             The path to Ordination on the part of the seminarian requires diligence in studies, growth in holiness, and immersion in the spiritual life throughout his seven – year formation. It also requires the generous giving of many, many people, for the vast majority of the average seminarian’s $23,000 annual tuition comes via contributions – both big and small – given donors just like you.

       The Fraternity is doubly blessed: We receive many new men seeking a traditional formation each year, and we have never had to turn a vocation away for lack of funds. As a result, in just two decades we have sent over 90 priests to nearly 50 locations in North America. This growth provides more and more Catholics with the opportunity to immerse themselves and their families in a parish apostolate that is spiritually energized by the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments, fortified with clear, orthodox teaching and inspired by youthful zeal and piety.

       So many faithful Catholics are praying that the Fraternity will be able to send a priest to them. This is why this annual appeal is so important! The generous response of our donors has been inspiring: Each year they manage to increase the total contribution for the formation and education of our seminarians.

Last year, this appeal generated over a quarter of the total cost required to fund the seminary. That was wonderful! Moreover, the proceeds of this appeal go directly to support tuition for Fraternity seminarians – not operating costs. In the past, we did not set an annual target, but this year we are breaking new ground: We want to raise enough to cover a full third of the expenses at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary!

This may appear to be an aggressive goal, but it seems truly attainable when I consider both the swelling number of our supporters and the great historical response to this campaign. Last year over two thousand donors contributed! Whether the gift was large or small, we were humbled and grateful that so many gave freely and without obligation for a cause that they deem, like us, to be the keystone in advancing both the Traditional Latin Mass and a Catholic resurgence.

Once again, I ask your support for this most important cause, and I thank you for your prayers and contributions to the Fraternity and our united mission. Please pray for our many priests and seminarians in North America; there is a great battle being waged in both the visible and invisible realms, and these men are greatly in need of your prayers.

In Corde Iesu, per Mariam,

Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, F.S.S.P.
